Winter Break

Let me give you 5 good reasons why a winter break in Pembrokeshire is a good idea.

You know what they say – “There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!!”  A bracing walk across the beach followed by a hot chocolate or Irish coffee in front of a roaring log fire in the local pub.  Sitting in warm and cosy accommodation, with the latest best seller in your lap, while being able to watch the Atlantic Rollers pounding in on the beach.  What more could you want. 

There is such a wide variety of types of accommodation in Pembrokeshire that you are bound to find something to suit your taste.  Is it a country cottage or a seafront apartment with those dramatic sea views that floats your boat?  Is it total isolation or being close to the local shop and pub that entices you?  From floating cabins to eco-friendly tepees – Pembrokeshire has it all.

With cheaper prices and less competition for dates you won’t be restricted to a whole week and can choose your day for travelling.  This is the ideal time for being able to explore and find those hidden and off the beaten track places that you might like to visit again for longer.

At a quieter time of year, with fewer people around,  it is easy to travel and park freely and you will probably have the beach to yourself.  You are pretty much guaranteed to get the table you want at that restaurant with the great reviews that you wanted to try.  And don’t forget those peaceful walks without having to meet anybody for miles when you pick the right route.  Just check the wind direction before deciding which part of the county to explore each day.

Climate change is bringing us surprisingly sunny and dry days each winter meaning you don’t always have to don the waterproofs to get out and about.  So, don’t forget the suncream – what ever time of year you come.
